Wet weather’s latest installment to arrive Friday

Thu., Feb. 25, 2010, 7:59 a.m.

The winter of wet, clammy weather will get its latest installment Friday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Following last year’s record snow levels, this winter has been marked by higher than normal temperatures and squalls of rain versus storms dumping inches of snow.

“There will be a system coming that will be fairly moist,” meteorologist Stephen Bodner said. “It’s going to split on the coast much like we have seen all this winter. It will have a very high moisture source. We are definitely going to see rain in the Spokane area.”

Steady rain is expected to continue into Saturday for the Spokane and Coeur d’Alene region, and then transition into rain showers Saturday.

“Then we start drying out of Sunday and the beginning of the work week,” Bodner said. “We have another system that will probably bring precipitation that should arrive by mid-week.”

The high temperatures will remain in the 40s and lows in the low to upper 30s, he said.
